Wycombe   1 - 1   Port Vale

Wycombe 1-1 Port Vale

Wycombe 1-1 Port Vale

Wycombe goalkeeper Nikki Bull saved Tom Pope's late penalty to earn his side a draw and deny Port Vale victory.

The visitors had taken the lead when Leon Johnson sliced the ball into his own net following Kris Taylor's cross.

Scott Donnelly, on loan from Swansea, equalised with his first goal for Wycombe when he burst through the middle and fired low past Chris Martin.

Vale had a chance to win the match when Johnson handled Doug Loft's cross but Bull saved Pope's spot-kick.


Wycombe manager Gary Waddock told BBC Three Counties Radio:
"It was two good sides going head to head in difficult conditions and we have picked up a valuable point.

"I wanted six points this week but we got four against two very good sides so overall I'm pleased.

"We kept going forward to get that winning goal, but it wasn't to be today."

Port Vale manager Jim Gannon told BBC Radio Stoke:
"When you have an opportunity from a penalty to take a win, you are disappointed but I'm not going to be too harsh on Popey (Tom Pope).

"To come here and get a draw and be in a position to have got all three is great credit to the players because this is a hard place to come to.

"Gaz (Gareth Owen) is feeling pain in his ankle and his knee so it's not looking good but we'll have to wait and see what the scans show."
